“organized by Jewish Voice for Peace — a self-described anti-Zionist activist group”
Hundreds of protesters descended on the Brooklyn home of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) this weekend, demanding the U.S. end aid to Israel and a ceasefire.
Dozens of arrests were made, which is ironic if you consider this point from Mollie Hemingway.

From the New York Post:
Dozens of protesters demanding Israel-Hamas ceasefire arrested outside Schumer’s NYC home
Local lawmakers were among dozens of demonstrators demanding a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war who were arrested outside New York Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Brooklyn home on Friday night, according to police sources.
Hundreds of people gathered at the Grand Army Plaza for the rally, organized by Jewish Voice for Peace — a self-described anti-Zionist activist group — before marching a few blocks to the senator’s Park Slope residence and blocking the street.
“New York Jews blocking @SenSchumer’s home demanding a ceasefire NOW,” Jewish Voice for Peace Action wrote on X.
Protesters held a large banner that read, “Jews say stop genocide against Palestinians” in front of Schumer’s building’s door with several police officers standing nearby.
Police were seen escorting dozens of handcuffed detainees onto MTA buses and driving away.
It’s a shame Brett Kavanaugh didn’t get this kind of protection at his house.
Protestors in front of SCOTUS' houses get a pass but don't protest in front of Schumer's place.

These protesters might be disappointed to know what Schumer is doing right now.
From the Times of Israel:
Schumer to lead bipartisan senators group to Israel to show ‘unwavering’ US support
Ahead of a trip to Israel this weekend, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says an upcoming administration request for wartime funding could include aid for both Israel and Ukraine.
Schumer — the first Jewish Senate majority leader and the highest-ranking Jewish elected official in the US — is leading a bipartisan delegation of senators to Israel this weekend to express support for the country amid its week-old war against Hamas. He told The Associated Press in an interview that he wants to make clear that the United States stands with Israel and also show bipartisan support.
“To have a bipartisan delegation, led by the majority leader saying strongly and unequivocally we’re with Israel is going to make a big difference to Israelis,” Schumer said.
The radical left’s position on this situation is maddening and sad.
